Who Is God Part 317

Who Is God
Isaac and Abimelek
PT1
Pg 45
Now there was a famine
in the land—besides the
previous famine in Abraham’s time—and Isaac went to Abimelek
king of the Philistines in
Gerar. 
The Lord appeared to
Isaac and said, “Do not
go down to Egypt; live in
the land where I tell you
to live. 
Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you.
For to you and your
descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore
to your father Abraham. 
I will make your descendants as numerous
as the stars in the sky and
will give them all these
lands, and through your
offspring all nations on
earth will be blessed, 
because Abraham obeyed
me and did everything I
required of him, keeping
my commands, my decrees and my instructions.” 
So Isaac stayed in 
Gerar.
When the men of that
place asked him about
his wife, he said, 
“She is my sister,” because he was afraid to
say, “She is my wife.”
He thought, “The men of
this place might kill me
on account of Rebekah, because she is beautiful.”
When Isaac had been there a long time, Abimelek king of the
Philistines looked down
from a window and saw
Isaac caressing his wife
Rebekah.
 So Abimelek summoned
Isaac and said, “She is really your wife! Why
did you say, ‘She is my
sister’?”
Isaac answered him, “Because I thought I might lose my life on account of her.”
Then Abimelek said,
“What is this you have done to us? 
One of the men might
well have slept with your
wife, and you would have brought guilt upon
us.”
So Abimelek gave orders
to all the people:
“Anyone who harms this
man or his wife 
shall surely be put to
death.”
